Lazy college student Jacques (Henry Garat) is forced by his wealthy uncle to take a job as a notary public. Jacques's efforts to keep his mind off his work come to naught when his sweetheart Jacqueline (Meg Lemonier) takes a clerical job in his office. Hero and heroine make love, bicker, split up, and come together again, all to the strains of R. Moretti's capricious musical score. Featured in the cast are the 24 Mangan Tilleretes, an all-girl chorus who appeared in several French musicals of the period. Likewise prominent in the proceedings is French stage star Moussala, whose celebrated legs are amply displayed at several important junctures.
